Every one claims that this is the best school. But, really that's what it looks like from the outside. Some parents move their kids from other schools because the school has a "drug problem" but sending them here isn't any different. It is just as bad. The students here that I go to school with are rude and stuck up.
Moved to Woodland Park area from MN but drive our son to Manitou Springs because it's a small school with a big heart and high academic standards. No locks on lockers because the kids really live their credo. Wish we would have moved here years ago, just to have all our kids attend this great school.
Excellent, my daughter moved from Woodland Park, and it is a totally different atmosphere. She is doing so much better and the kids are so much more open and nicer. The teachers help with every student. The school is truly unique and amazing.
I moved to Manitou three years ago, from a private international school. I did not know what to expect, but my kids both love the high school. The teachers are amazing, and most of the students very friendly. My kids have lot's of friends and enjoy sports and academics. Go Mustangs!
Great school -- small classes - which I like. You know the teachers and your child is not a number. We moved here a year ago and son has excelled here -- and he has loads of friends. Its always hard for the newcomers to find their place- but Manitou made it easy for him.
